Dulwich Festival 2013: Miko’s Open Studio and Cartoon Workshop

We have just had a couple of exhaust­ing, but thor­oughly enjoy­able week­ends. As part of the pres­ti­gi­ous Dul­wich Fest­iv­al 20th Anniversary, I was asked to run a few car­toon work­shops, to which I agreed. While I was at it, would … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Another illustration for ‘Lifestyle’ and Rory Mackenzie’s article

One just has to have huge respect and admir­a­tion for action man Rory Mack­en­zie, the author of the main art­icle in this month’s ‘Life­style Magazine’. He was serving as a med­ic in Iraq when a road side bomb blew off … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Ever nearly fallen asleep at the wheel? Too many of us have.…

My latest com­mis­sion was illus­trat­ing an art­icle about tak­ing your car abroad. This is an art­icle for ‘Mot­ab­il­ity Life­style’, the motor­ing magazine for the dis­abled. Driv­ing on for­eign roads is tough enough for the able bodied.Yet anoth­er reas­on to be … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Breathe Easy Campaign Creative Concepts

  I’ve been com­mis­sioned to cre­ate char­ac­ter and situ­ation con­cepts for the Brit­ish Lung Foundation’s  ‘Breathe Easy’ Cam­paign. So my thoughts are towards fresh air and blue skies and to visu­al­ise both free­dom of breath­ing fresh air and restric­tion of … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Another Example of What Illustrations Can Do for an Art Gallery’s Publicity Material

As an illus­trat­or, I am some­times asked to cre­ate pub­li­city mater­i­al for exhib­i­tions of art­work by oth­er artists. Some artists do not allow oth­er artists to use their images even for pro­mo­tion­al pur­poses. So we have to cre­ate our way … Con­tin­ue read­ing

A new ‘communications’ illustration for the web

I cre­ated this illus­tra­tion for the ‘con­tact us’ page for a new web site. Again, a dif­fer­ent style which I think would make a great image for a greet­ings card, cloth­ing etc. Using a dif­fer­ent image to a type­writer and dif­fer­ent appro­pri­ate … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Cover Illustration for Andy Warhol Exhibition

I have been com­mis­sioned to cre­ate the cov­er illus­tra­tion for the edu­ca­tion­al trail of the Andy War­hol exhib­i­tion at the Dul­wich Pic­ture Gal­lery. Nice job, but made harder as one isn’t allowed to rep­lic­ate Andy Warhol’s work. So cre­at­ive think­ing … Con­tin­ue read­ing
